naa mini revolver main spring.

how often does your main spring break? i had one for 15+ years and one day the main spring just snapped. i shot maybe 400 rounds of .22 mag. im sure i cocked it more than that though. still, doesn't seem like enough to break that thick spring. i ordered 2 main springs from their site. hope they are made better now days.

where is the .22 mag ammo?? do they even make it anymore? i wanted gold dot short barrel .22 mag.

Yes they still make it, but like all .22 rimfire ammo there is a run on it making it nearly impossible to find sometimes. It's mostly luck if and when you can find it. Their are hoarders who buy up all the .22 ammo they can find and it's one of the main reasons this ammo is so scarce. Just keep looking, you might have to buy online at inflated prices to what you're used to, also as a result of the hoarders.

Just remember that the side plate screw has a left-hand thread.

I've a LR version. owned it for well more than twenty years. Used to carry it in my chest pocket as a last ditch LE back up. When the gun was about a year old it's mainspring did just as yours.

Hated to part with the gun & called NA.....they obligingly immediately sent a new spring, but fitting that and getting the hand return spring inserted properly is a real chore (and I am a pretty fair tinkerer!!)........I finally gave up & mailed the piece to them & had it back in a week.....great folks to deal with...

Incidentally, I've probably put a thousand thru that gun since the replacement with no problem at all.

I had one snap on a .22 short. Didn't fire it much. Played with it alot. One day "tink".
Eh. Stuff breaks. Sent it in, they fixed and refurbed it free.
